Black Prince Cabin Site

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Black Prince Cabin site, Stony Creek (bobcat)


The site of the Black Prince Cabin sits above Stony Creek. You'll have to clamber through a tangle of fallen trees to get to the creek before crossing it to scramble up to the cabin site. An iron stove top, bricks, an old bucket, etc., are what remain of a miner’s secluded shelter.

The cabin may have been constructed more than 100 years ago. Adits down Stony Creek are where the miners spent their days digging out ore that contained mainly copper and zinc. The Black Prince Claim was part of the Mineral Harbor group of claims in the Little North Santiam Mining District.
